SIDNEY -- Sidney's Snow Emergency is set to expire at 5 p.m. today.

Sidney City officials announced today the Snow Emergency will expire at 5 p.m. today. 

City workers will continue clearing snow from the streets. The City encourages safe driving as the streets are still icy in spots.

The latest Snow Emergency was issued January 17 beginning 5 p.m. that night. 

During the issuance of a snow emergency, no vehicles shall be parked or remain to be parked on any portion of an emergency snow route. The issuance of a snow emergency is to help facilitate the ability of snow removal equipment to clear these routes as quickly as possible.

The emergency snow routes are designated by red and blue signs posted along the street. Additionally, residents can view a map showing all of the emergency snow routes on the City website at cityofsidney.org. Type in “snow routes” in the search engine. This will take you to information where you can view a scalable map.

Residents whose vehicles remain on the street after the effective time will be contacted by City emergency personnel and requested to remove their vehicle. In the event that vehicles remain on the emergency snow routes after the snow emergency declaration, owners of these vehicles may be cited and/or their vehicles towed away at the owner’s expense.
